It *would* be great to get hooked up to the conference somehow. In fact,
we've been looking into this. One big obstacle is the nine-hour time
differential - we're thinking that playing a recording of the keynote may
be the best we can do. It's all still just speculation at this stage.

I would like to see an MBONE broadcast of some of the proceedings
since many (most?) people from the North America region won't be
able to attend. Maybe a SIGWEB meeting could be scheduled for the
same date and avirtual teleconference panel discussion could happen.

Are others interested in a telepresence?
